    Eddie never claimed to invent it.
    Roy Smeck was doing it on a ukulele in the 1930's.....

    I really liked it when he started playing the bass line during All of Me. It sounded like someone slapping an upright bass. Very cool.

    I remember reading an interview when Eddie said (about tapping): I can't believe I'm the first guy who did it. But I think I'm the first guy who ran with it."

    Wow and yeah!! The Chapman Stick...what an amazing instrument. I did some further looking and he's got a great version of "Norwegian Wood." I also listened to a guy named Greg Howard doing a version of "Tomorrow Never Knows" that was pretty darned cool.

    The link you provided as well as the other few I found goes to show how timeless the Beatles are. You can take those songs in a new direction and the songs still stand.

    Thanks Mike M. ...I would bet in 100 yrs and beyond they'll still be playing Beatles music. I just find this instrument's sound so unique. Talk about playing by yourself....Ha!

    Re: Eddie Van What????

    First person I ever heard of doing anything like this was Jimmie Webster, who used to demo Gretsch guitars in the 50's/early 60's. he had what he described as "The Touch System", but it was more like what Stanley Jordan did later. I've also read about Classical guitarist Fernado Sor using this as well. Then Billy Gibbons (Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers, etc...), Brian May ("It's Late", etc...), and of course Harvey Mandel.

    Here's another cat... maybe closer to the Stick technique though...



    You might also wanna check out Ben Lacey if you're interested in this style on steroids. GREAT modern day player who makes this technique the cornerstone of his playing.
